Progress is being made on a male birth control pill.

Some pharmaceutical companies have reached experimental stages in their work, but researchers say that some serious flaws persist. By tweaking the compounds, they were able to improve their success.

While there are a number of birth control pills available for women, they are not a suitable option for all couples.
